Pierce Brosnan Is Reportedly in Early Negotiations to Play Cable in DEADPOOL 2
Not long ago Ryan Reynolds shared a photo of himself hanging out with Hugh Jackman and Piece Brosnan. Fan speculation exploded with talk of Brosnan being up for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. Turns out there might actually be some truth to that!
During one of the most recent episode of Meet The Movie Press, Forbes reporter Simon Thompson shared some information from a conversation he had with Deadpool 2 director David Leitch. He approached the director with a tricky comment to get an answer from him. This is what he said went down:
"So I said, 'Congratulations on casting Pierce Brosnan, and he went, 'We have not... yet.'"
There was an emphasis on the “yet.” He went on to say that Reynolds will decide when all the reveals go out for the casting and characters because he’s the producer on the movie.
Co-host Jeff Sneider of The Tracking Board went on record to back the claim saying that co-host Justin Kroll of Variety, “can't say anything, but, yeah, I've heard it's going to him." Him being Brosnan.
It’s still too early to tell how exactly the casting of Cable in Deadpool 2 will play out, but it seems like Reynolds and the creative team might actually really be trying to get Brosnan to play Cable in this movie!
It’s pretty crazy and interesting casting, and if Brosnan is cast I have no doubt that he’s going to be awesome in the role!
